WASHINGTON — The United States says the situation in Egypt is of "deep concern" and is calling on Egyptian authorities to enact reforms and allow peaceful protests and open communication as anti-government street protests swell.

State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said Friday that Egypt must respect the "fundamental rights" of its people and avoid violence. He also said reform is vital to the country's long-term stability and security, and urged the government to view its people as a partner and not a threat.

Crowley's comments were posted on Twitter, which has been blocked by Egyptian authorities. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to address the developments in Egypt later Friday.
